Poured from a 375ml bottle dated 5/12 (courtesy of cestlavie, as an extra) into a Prairie Teku glass.

Appearance: A sizable, bubbly, champagne-style head dissolves relatively quickly into a thick crown around the edge of the glass. The beer itself is particularly beautiful, at the base of the beer it starts a rosy pink, then fades to vermilion, and then to a rusty yellow toward the top. What a beautiful range of colors in here.

Smell: Tart, and barely acetic with some funk backing both up. I can get quite a few floral notes too as I stick my nose deep into the glass. As I stick it deeper, intense dried apricots come through as well. Very complex, but requires some work to truly appreciate the variety.

Taste: Sour but barely, with floral perfume mixing well with cracker malts. The perfume is barely bitter, and the hibiscus is the one flower I can pick out above the other two, although I'm not particularly familiar with elderflower. Lightly bitter, and just a bit watery. The funk on the nose is evident as well.

Mouthfeel: Prickly like cider at first, but quite smooth afterward. Just a bit dry.

Overall: Very interesting sour, and I enjoyed it. Definitely a solid beer worth picking up if you see it.
